Paper Abstract

We present and analyze a new concept for a semiconductor laser with a Fourier-transform external cavity that allows for purely electronically operated wavelength tuning, simultaneous control of multiple gain media within one shared external cavity, and simultaneous multi-wavelength emission from one laser diode only. We investigate the new setup with particular focus on simultaneous two or even multi-wavelength operation from the same diode. The simultaneity of the two modes is unambiguously proven by sum-frequency generation. In addition, we discuss applications of the simultaneous two-wavelength operation with a particular focus on Terahertz difference frequency generation in combination with a photomixer.
